    They had control of both houses of Congress for two years. We got Obamacare, which nobody in America outside of Washington wanted. And... virtually nothing else (thank God!). But don`t despair - at least the President has managed to bring back terrorism! Man, that 7 years after 9-11 where we were actually on the path to World Peace and had no attacks on American soil were SO BORING! 4 attacks in America in 6 years and resurgent terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan - now THAT`S progress! (Oh, and 40,000 illegal alien children in concentration camps, 25% real unemployment, a dying coal industry and retired soldiers dying while they wait for appointments at the VA... how can he say nothing`s getting done? Sounds like the Obama agenda is marching right along, no problem!)

    "Could I get a civic textbook out and show you where it says the president cannot change the law by himself?"

    And yet Obama HAS changed several laws by himself via executive order. He`s decided what laws the DOJ will enforce and which they won`t.

    So don`t even go there, Obama has usurped the law and bypassed congress more than any previous administration.

    Btw, Harry Reid is the real obstructionist. He`s blocked several House budget bills from even being introduced in the Senate and has blocked dozens of votes just so Obama wouldn`t look bad vetoing them.

    Yeah, Obama has changed laws unilaterally quite a few times. If Bush did it, lots of butt hurt would occur.

    And um, the Republicans have never had as much power as the Democrats had between 2009 and 2010. Not in like a 100 years or so.

    A good leader is able to unite people, in any regard. So that in itself is a pretty damning indictment. Seriously, if you can`t unite people, you suck at leading. It`s up to YOU as the leader to unite everyone. The buck should stop with you. But it never has with Obama. Harry Truman would be mortified.

    ...anything good and progressive...
    Wiener gets the oxymoron of the day award with that one.

    Obama had majorities both houses of congress, including a filibuster-proof majority in the senate, and what did we get for that? An $800 billion stimulus bill that did absolutely NOTHING to stimulate the economy, and Obamacare.

    The people rose up and threw the Democrats out of the house specifically to stop Obama`s socialist redistributionist agenda because they could see the damage it was doing to the country. They would have thrown him out in 2012 if he hadn`t illegally used the IRS to suppress his opposition.

    There`s a lot of blame to go around, but it`s clearly among the most deadlocked, do-nothing, partisan, hackmongering that we`ve ever seen in Congress. Look at bills that`ve been blocked by filibuster protocol (not actual filibusters, just the statement that one`s coming, thereby stopping conversation, blocked nominees to senior posts, partisan votes, partisan votes to suspend rules, on and on and on.

    As for executive orders, Obama has used fewer than Bush II or Clinton. Far, far less than Clinton. And, yes, when I say there are problems and obstructionism, I blame both sides.

    As for Weiner, I wish no one would give that idiot a pulpit. *He`s* an expert? Please.

    Bullpoo, sometimes in life people will not compromise and you hit a deadlock. Nothing you can do about it, either stay in deadlock or give up. Just because the house is partisan doesn`t mean he`s a good or bad president. The US system has been designed purposely to make it difficult to get anything passed.

    It`s what he actually has had power to do where he is too be judged negatively or positively, I tend to sway for the former.

    1) Why the hell should anyone care what this joker has to say?

    2) Democrats had the House, Senate, and Presidency for 2 years. <Insert "blah blah blah FILIBUSTERS blah blah blah">. They were too concerned with ramming the ACA through that they didn`t bother to pass a budget.

    3) It takes both sides to have a conversation. You can`t call the Republicans obstructionists when they pass something in the House that immediately gets shot down in the Senate. It goes both ways.

    So Republicans wanting to stop legislation that will create economic disasters is bad? Maybe it`s a good thing a lot of legislation has been stopped.

    Oh, and Maher is a fool; a text book may claim that the president cannot change a law by himself, yet he can and does do many things that have the same effect. How many times have we heard the tyrant say he would do whatever it takes, including going around congress, to get his agenda passed?

    Give me a break. Are Americans really this brainwashed by partisan politics?

    I have no problem with them trying to stop everything. Angela Merkel has been actively trying to keep the status quo and not pass any new laws in Germany, and their economy is pretty darn stable. When you pass tons of new laws and regulations, people get scared and quit spending money, so the economy flounders. Slow and steady wins the race. The less they get done, the better. We had too many regulations 10 years ago, so I hope both parties get jack squat done for the next 10.

    Saying that the president should have done more, and then saying that it`s good that the Republicans are stopping laws from being passed are two opposing statements. For some reason Republicans don`t understand that.

    Wow...so much selective editing, cherry-picking of quotes out of context and omission of entire sections of the dialog, post is nothing more then bait for the rabid conservatives on this site.

    I won`t even comment on the stupidity or the nutbags that feel they have to get their two cents in, because it most definitely isn`t even worth half a cent.

    Seriously? After all this time you STILL haven`t figured this out? The whole f***ing thing was a direct result of government regulation.

    First, the government used CRADA to force banks to make loans to unqualified borrowers. Then Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac bought up all of those worthless mortgages from the banks, bundled them up, and resold them to unsuspecting investors on Wall St. as "government securities."

    Then, all those new buyers that were pushed into the housing market drove real estate prices through the roof until they couldn`t make the payments on the mortgages that they never should have gotten in the first place, and it all came crashing down. (Am I going too fast for you?)

    Don`t get me wrong; Bush was just as guilty as anyone for signing onto this Democrat policy. Same with steel tariffs, NCLB and Medicare Part D.

    No?
    How about those 2 years Obama had a Majority in BOTH houses?
    No?
    In fact, Weiner is a Democrat, and DUH he`s going to smear them?
    Yes.

    End of story.

    I doubt ANY of IAB`s Liberal Brigade will have ONE intelligent thing to say about this.

    @SmagBoy1 makes a semi-good point that Obama hasn`t made MORE Decrees than the previous few PotUS.
    BUT he forgets that Obama has more "Czars" than anyone. And has used various government branches to enforce HIS will regardless of legality.
    And the ones he does Decree? They`re WHOPPERS!

    And ALL those Bills the House passes that sit and die in the Senate? What about those?
    Not a peep, eh?
    Typical.

    Obey your MSM Masters and follow the script to the letter!

    Remember when Bush was president and Democrats all voted in unison to block every one of his legislative priorities?
    Remember when Democrats blamed Bush for 9-11 and spent months after the attack engaged in a witch-hunt against administration officials?
    Remember when Democrats voted 41 times to repeal Bush`s No Child Left Behind Act even before it was implemented?

    Yeah, Neither do I.

    Oh, and if Obama had not pushed through a law which he is now breaking (so he clearly thinks it is a bad law) that he had to lie about on multiple occasions so he clearly thought it was an unpopular law; of course even with the lies it was still unpopular) and that he had to bribe congressmen to pass (so they clearly thought it was a bad law) then Democrats would probably have kept control of the House and a super-majority in the Senate. The man is a complete moron.

    OMG, is this liberals 101 or what? Everything is there; blame everyone but themselves, distract from reality, have good intentions but never actually do anything, espouse how tolerant they are while being completely intolerant of any other ideas but theirs. I would applaud as well but congratulate the GOP blocking these lefty measures that all they do is hurt people under the guise of feel-good hashtag helping; almost to a policy it is so! What this tells me is we seriously need an evolution in the way we govern ourselves. I will never follow that lefty crapola and clearly the left will never agree to a GOP agenda. Hence, some other solution must be reached; whatever that may be.

    We never should have went to Iraq in the first place. The only clear way to victory is to wipe them off the planet. That`s it! If we aren`t willing to completely eradicate them it was a fools venture.

    Also Weiner isn`t exactly an expert here, at least for god sake I hope not.

    Sleepyhollow - It`s an interesting point you make. You seem to be pro-democrat, which is funny given the information you just outlined. The Democrats supported the Patriot Act and the Iraq War and basically all of these other Bush policies when it was convenient. They were quick to distance themselves when necessary. Then they possessed massive legislative power after 2006, just in time for the financial crisis. But they aren`t to blame for that at all.

    So are you arguing that they have co-culpability with Bush? I don`t get it. You`re all over the place.

    @normalfreak2: And let Saddam take-over Kuwait? Ignore the UN`s directives? That sounds like a BAD idea to me...

    Remember when Democrats blamed Bush for 9-11...

    YES! @Sleepyhallow, in fact I DO remember that clearly!
    Who do you think was chanting "9/11 was an inside job" for all those YEARS? Republicans? That`s what @normalfreak2 thinks, :-) LOLZ!
